CAR EVENTS

CRUISE NIGHTS (& Other Recurring Car Gatherings)

*We are now in process of building up our 2020 event listings... The 2020s are now back to being highlighted in FUCHSIA... As always, we welcome you to please send us your CT Shoreline-area old car event listings!

This Calendar is originated and periodically updated by the Shoreline Antique Auto Connection, a not-for-profit enterprise run for antique auto enthusiasts, by antique auto enthusiasts. As the information presented here is gleaned from a WIDE variety of sources, there is no way we can vouch for the truth or accuracy of anything, and we STRONGLY suggest you get in touch with the applicable event contacts listed, to make sure the event is indeed going to be held (especially before you make a long trip to attend!). Thank you. SAAC, P.O. Box 3353, Stony Creek, CT 06405, e-mail CommonGear@aol.com, web site http://www.shorelineantiqueautoconnection.com/ . Please send your CT Shoreline-area event listings for inclusion here (non-marque-specific events preferred).

WHY DO WE DO THIS? - We maintain this Calendar as a service to our fellow local-area antique auto enthusiasts! It's not perfect, but we always work very hard at it, and try to verify as much as possible everything that we publish. And we love to share it! We are not professionals at this--only enthusiasts who enjoy the old car hobby. What would really make us happy, however, is that those who may like to copy and paste our exhaustively researched (always with sources credited), written-out & detailed listings for their own web site use, to please occasionally give us a little bit of a shout-out! Thanks for your understanding and support! See you out there at the shows & cruises!

"WHERE ELSE ARE GOOD PLACES TO LOOK FOR UPCOMING CAR EVENT LISTINGS FOR THIS AREA?" - Frankly, at this stage of the game (mid-June 2020), the only calendar I really trust is THIS ONE. Other calendars that I look at regularly appear to be suffering from "lack of interest" by their editors/maintainers--and I can't say I blame them, since so much of the calendar updating I seem do these days is to revise events into cancelled events--it's depressing. For some reasonably reliable places to go look for events in Connecticut in general (we make no excuses for our desire to stay CT Shoreline-focused on this page), we first recommend The Connecticut Council of Car Clubs Events Calendar (whose editor John B. is extremely conscientious about keeping it accurate and updated; may we also suggest joining their Facebook group page for lots of event updates as well: https://www.facebook.com/groups/connecticutcouncilofcarclubs/), and then also Hemmings and also OldRide.com ... Beyond those, good luck... SUGGESTION: Contact the club or organization directly to see if their event is actually going to happen--relying solely on someone's haphazardly-maintained compendium of events (and I'm not saying I'm infallible--I only do this as a hobby after all) can often get you into trouble... Happy event hunting!

Sure is nice to see things gradually opening up again, and this event able to be rescheduled with an actual reschedule date, that we just heard about yesterday via an e-mail from the organizer Cathy! Following are excerpts from Cathy’s note of 7/1/2020: “…Hi, Steve, Hope all is well with you and your family… As I said in my last e-mail. I did go to Panera and talked with the manager. She said we can’t cruise there until after Phase III comes in. She also is very optimistic that Panera will be BUSY during the month of August. She wants us to wait until after Labor Day. The first Wednesday after Labor Day is Sept. 9, 2020. That will be the night of the cruise. The RAIN date will be Sept. 16, 2020. I’ve contacted all ‘helpers’ and everyone is in, including Rockin’ Richard. So hopefully, we’ll get good weather. It will get dark earlier, but that is something we can’t control. There is plenty of lighting up there… Hope you have a great Fourth! --Cathy…”… Thanks Cathy!

She also enjoyed planning the car cruises held at Marty’s restaurant in Westbrook and the Labor Day Cruise held at the Elks Club in Westbrook…”). Cathy requested that we help get this notice publicized within the local Shoreline-area antique auto hobby scene, so I would like to quote directly from Cathy’s note of 8/24/2019: “…We, The Shoreline Recycled Teenage Cruisers of which Lucille was President, were planning a Memorial Cruise for her… The Cruise will be held 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. Rockin’ Richard will be our DJ. Food and indoor restrooms available. Trophies, a 50/50 Raffle, goodie bag items, too!  Any questions can be directed to me at 203-453-9453. Thanks very much for your help… Cathy…”… Thanks very much, Cathy! Though I did not know Lucille Sharp, I was very well aware of the huge role she played for many years in organizing our local Shoreline-area old car hobby scene! I definitely attended many of the great old “Marty’s of Westbrook” cruises thru the years, often taking my kids with me, when they were little—always good times! What a wonderful thing that Cathy Stewart and her fellow Shoreline Recycled Teenage Cruisers car club members are doing to help remember Lucille!... Thanks again Cathy for the heads up!…”… (this event was added to this calendar as of 7/2/2020)

This decision was not arrived at lightly. Our Club prides itself on producing a world-class event that thousands of people anticipate every year, so we felt the heaviest of burdens when faced with this decision... While making the difficult choice to cancel, the Board took many obstacles into account, including but not limited to: the health and welfare of our volunteers, vendors, partners, and visitors; the unknown restrictions and/or guidelines that may be in place at the time of our show; and the volunteer-only workforce we rely on to prepare for a show of our magnitude... We appreciate you understanding how difficult this decision was for the Executive Board to make. We know that some people will be upset by the decision and others will applaud it. Either way, please know that the Hershey Region Executive Board has acted in what they believe are the best interests of the Club, and we ask for your continued support as we navigate these unprecedented times... Refund information will be sent very soon in regards to all payments already received by the Hershey Region AACA... Please know that we continue to explore ideas to benefit the hobby and are working toward the possibility of still hosting our usual car show on Saturday in October.

CRUISE NIGHTS (& Other Recurring Car Gatherings) 

IMPORTANT: Since the world of Cruise Night listings seems to be especially filled with old, out-of-date information--which has, on occasion, led to frustrating drives to non-existent cruises (we speak from direct personal experience!)--we've decided to do our best to only list confirmed listings (though we still urge you to call ahead before making any long trips, since we cannot guarantee anything), which we'll clearly highlight with a noticeable color--we have been alternating red and fuchsia in recent years to highlight the most recent years' listings. *11/12/2019 UPDATE - back to FUCHSIA for the new 2020 listings!!... Anyway, now that it's the New Year, if you have any confirmed 2019 cruise event listings, please send us yours--especially those Shoreline-oriented, for inclusion here--Thanks!... Please do be very careful to note that some of last year's 2019 listings are still here--we have NO INFORMATION about whether or not the 2018 listings are still valid or not, but we are leaving them in place for now, in case they might be useful for reference/who to contact to request 2020 info from, etc... Finally, when you see a listing prefaced with (old listing), that means it's from 2018 or earlier--in other words, really old, and probably unreliable info...

It is absolutely one of my favorite summertime car-things-to-do! The reason we are getting this onto our calendar in a timely manner is also thanks to a very nice e-mail heads-up that we just received; quoting from the e-mail from our Southeastern CT old car friend Clem Brown (lxxvtr6@aol.com), with the subject line “Ocean Beach Cruise Night Schedule,” that was dated 4/9/2019: “…Hi Steve, Ocean Beach just published their official schedule - cruise nights start Monday, May 20th and run every Monday through September 9th. In case folks aren't familiar, it's free for everyone to get in after 5 PM but if you just tell them at the booth you're participating in the cruise night, they will let you in for free any time after 4 PM… Thought you would want to know for the calendar.

Misfit Cruise Night is back TONIGHT 5-8pm! Hope to see you there!...” Sounds great to us! Glad to see the return of this very cool cruise in beautiful Haddam CT!... Additional info – Quoting from their last year (2017) flyer, for the then-new location: “…MisFits Cruise Nights, every Tuesday, 5-8pm, at 95 Bridge Road, Haddam, CT—home of Tony’s Package Store & River Valley Provisions!... Free! All vehicles welcome! Food & drink! Music!...” Additional thoughts – The MisFits have been running great Tuesday night cruise nights for a lot of years, and they definitely have the formula down, along with one amazing following. I have been to their cruise nights in the past when they’ve been at the Essex Fire Department, also the Deep River Plattwood Park cruise nights, and now, so impressed with their new venue that came online within the past couple of years, at the big lot at 95 Bridge Road in Haddam--home of Tony’s Package Store (https://www.facebook.com/TonysPackageHaddam/) and River Valley Provisions (https://www.facebook.com/RVPGrocery/), AND Steady Habit Brewing Company (https://www.steadyhabitbrewingcompany.com/) located around the back of the building as well! I was very pleased to attend one of the early-season 2017 events, had a great time, and am looking forward to coming back again for the 2019 season!...
